Hi and welcome to Challenge 8 of our 2017 Christmas Card Club, a group of card makers who share a card every 2 weeks. One of the group selects a challenge theme, and we create with that theme. So...this week our team mate Valery (ValeryAnne Designs) picked the theme of 'Humourous'. Now, Mrs. A happens to be the Queen of Recycled Christmas cards, which she always showcases in unusual and lovely ways, so I can't wait to see what she will show us for this challenge.
As you know, I've been in a sorting, moving, finding mode for a while; found the focal image of today's card in a box and decided it would work for 'humorous'. With a few strips of snippets paper, a snippets sort of image, the card rather made itself. I'm still not sure what I think of it, but at least some of the VOS got used up. And I quite like Santa - just not sure about the background.
Don't know what company made the stamp, but remember it's an old wooden image, colored with copics, and WoS. The mat die is a S/B scallop die, but not sure of the one used for Santa; rather think it's an inner decorative part of a labels die..
- strips of snippets were cut and glued down to make the background, and decided that using the border strip would suffice for a sentiment.
The card is basically 5x5, but trimmed just a scosh..(do you know that word? It means just a teeny, tiny, teeny bit!)
Do check out what my team members will be sharing for this challenge. Their blogs links are listed in the right side bar.
Hope you've have a splendid weekend, and Happy Easter. Hugs & Blessings.
